Jason,

Not sure about videos, but Cmd-shift-3 will capture your entire screen and Cmd-shift-4 will give you crosshairs to capture whatever part of your screen you want to capture. Both give you a .png picture on your desktop.

Welcome to the forum!

Noel,
Thank you for the info, I am trying to set up a presentation where I would be commenting and going through a few steps on my screen and will have to go to a few websites, do you know if I can do that with the current set up or do I have to look for software ?

If you are looking to capture video of your screen as you perform specific actions, run a Google search for "video screen capture". You'll get a bunch of links to various programs that have free trials. Be warned though that these will most likely have a time limit and may leave a watermark on the video unless you purchase the full version.

You can use iMovie for this, I think. Just record with iSight as source.
